IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
In-Person Church School—Starting This Saturday: Feb 20
In order to better provide for our kids' spiritual formation, limited in-person Church School will start this Saturday, February 20 (God willing). It will meet at 11am every Saturday, and will be limited to children up to Fifth Grade.

The following policies will be strictly enforced, for the safety of our kids and their families:

  • Masks will be mandatory for all adults and children (all ages).
  • Only teachers and students will be permitted inside the building during classes.
  • Physical distancing and hand sanitizing will be practiced as much as possible.
  • Two teachers will be required in each class.

Thank you to Church-School Director Brandon Jones and all our Christian Education team for their flexibility and creativity throughout the pandemic! Thanks also to our parents, who have taken on the spiritual education of their children along with extra responsibilities in their secular education. By God's grace, we hope to move past this time of restrictions soon and resume normal Sunday School in the fall. Until then, we appreciate everyone's flexibility, perseverance, and support.
January Update
Our January giving was 88% of our monthly goal of $14,000. We were $1500 short—which sounds like a lot of money. But if each of us would increase our monthly gift by 12%, or if six new families started giving $250 per month, we'd be there!

Please consider how you can help us reach our goal and take a minute to complete your MEMBERSHIP FORMS now:
